For Facts Sake: Mrs Brown’s Boys’ star Brendan O’Carroll to host new BBC One show

For Facts Sake is a brand new BBC One show, to be hosted by Mrs Brown’s Boys’ star Brendan O’Carroll.


The quiz show will ask ‘all the questions’… Was Elvis a drug enforcement agent for President Nixon? Is Russia bigger than Pluto?

Mrs. Brown’s Boys creator and star Brendan O’Carroll has all the answers in the brand new panel show, to air on BBC One this year.

Brendan hosts the hilarious new quiz that celebrates ordinary people and their extraordinary facts. Two teams will compete in a series of entertaining rounds and games that uncover some amazing truths about the world we live in.

Each team will be captained by a rotating cast of Mrs. Brown’s Boys regulars, with the rest of the panel made up of members of the audience, invited down to join the game. Expect laughs galore as the teams try to outfox each other with their fascinating facts and eye for true trivia.

Host Brendan O’Carroll said: “I’m really excited to be doing a show where I don’t have to wear a bra! When we did the pilot it was great fun, if we can capture that on the screen we are all in for a good time.”

Charlotte Moore, Director of Content added: “I can’t wait for Brendan O’Carroll to bring his own inimitable warmth and wit to a brand new comedy panel show for BBC One.”

Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning, commented: “Brendan is extremely funny but also extremely curious and I know our viewers will have a ball laughing and learning with him.”


Dan Baldwin, Managing Director of Hungry Bear Media, said: “Brendan is incredibly bright, is the ultimate raconteur and has a hunger for exceptional facts and unbelievable historical truths. The show will put both his, and the audience’s, knowledge to the test with brilliantly funny rounds, games and VTs that push the public firmly in the spotlight.

“If you like your comedy to have ‘take home’ then you’ll love For Facts Sake.”
